Britain’s Conservatives choose Boris Johnson to succeed Theresa May

By on July 23, 2019 0 82 Views

London, July 23, 2019: Former foreign secretary Boris Johnson has been elected leader of Britain’s ruling Conservative Party to succeed Prime Minister Theresa May, the party says.

Johnson won about two-thirds of the votes by Conservative party members in a run-off with Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, putting him one step – and one day – away from becoming Britain’s new leader.

Cheryl Gillan, co-chair of the election committee, told hundreds of party members and reporters that Johnson had been elected the new leader of the Conservative Party with immediate effect, following a ballot of the 160,000 Conservative members. (dpa)
